Chicken and Vegetable Pie

Chopped up little bits of chicken
 This is a mish mash of what I had to hand at the time, I am not very creative, and need an idea to expand on, I used the crispy topped fish pie as my basis and then expanded on that..... This is probably why I always begin with a recipe.

3. Pour all but about 30ml of the milk into the mixture, then add the cornflour/cornstarch to the remaining milk, give it a good stir and then add to the mixture, stirring until thickened, if it's not thick enough repeat the cornflour process again, with a little less liquid. Taste and season accordingly.

4. Spoon the mixture into the pots you want to use and then top with the pastry, bake at 180 C for about 20 minutes or until pastry is golden.
